Cameron Clemmons enters his first year as offensive quality control coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. Clemmons brings five years of collegiate coaching experience to the post, including the last four seasons with Tennessee.
In 2019, Clemmons finished his first year as an offensive quality control analyst for the Volunteers. The team posted an 8-5 record overall with a 5-3 record in the SEC East Division, both marks equaling a three-win improvement from the 2018 campaign. The eight wins also marked the most by the program since 2016, while the five victories within the conference marked the most since 2015. Under Clemmons' mentorship, G Trey Smith earned first-team All-SEC honors, while both T Wanya Morris and T Darnell Wright garnered freshman All-American and freshman All-SEC accolades in the same season. The program earned its first bowl game appearance since 2016 and completed the season with a win over Indiana in the Gator Bowl.
Clemmons assumed the role of offensive quality control analyst in 2019 after spending the prior three seasons as a graduate assistant on staff from 2016-18. While in his assistantship with the Volunteers, Clemmons participated in the Bill Walsh Minority Fellowship with the New England Patriots in 2017, working with club throughout the offseason program, minicamp and training camp to gain coaching experience.
In his first year with Tennessee in 2016, Clemmons' primary focus was angled towards mentoring the running backs. That year, RBs Alvin Kamara and John Kelly both exceeded 500 rushing yards. Following the season, Kamara was selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft, while Kelly was drafted in the sixth round in 2018.
